23 May 2024 (Couch session and DJ Night )24 May 2024 (Cape Town Main event )26 May 2024 (Joburg Main event)

The Afrodiaspora Connection is a collaborative music exchange project curated by Joburg based alternative music development agency The Dig and Uk based jazz and alternative music organisation Jazzre:freshed, The Project aims to establishing a cross cultural music community and exchange between South Africa and the UK and African diaspora communities.

We are happy to announce grammy award winning duo Blue lab beats as one of the UK bands headlining the Afrodiaspora connection. Blue Lab Beats are one of the fastest-rising production duos in the world, expertly and fluidly fusing jazz, hip-hop, Afrobeat, soul and electronica, whilst representing a hungry and endlessly talented generation inspired by the forebearers of jazz and the pioneers of hip-hop’s golden age, where musicality was a primary principle.

We’ve also invited visionary saxophonist, composer, bandleader and innovator, Camilla george. Her strong cultural roots and love of fusing African and Western Music has informed her own unique style, a key reason why she is a firm fixture on the new London Jazz scene and taking the European music scene by storm. A recipient of the Urban music award for best jazz act 2023. Her music is a hypnotising blend of Afrofuturism, hip hop and jazz, with a politically minded subtext that has a powerful connection to her Nigerian identity, lineage and heritage, reflecting African history, culture and slavery.
